I have always had a passion for helping and advocating for people. My background comes with a bit of variety, including: mental health, substance use, corrections, and crisis intervention. Through my experience, clients often came to me feeling lost and uncertain. I helped them through those difficult times by building on their strengths while working on the past experiences that had brought them here. Something I love about people is how resilient we are and how we can achieve so much more than we think. It is amazing seeing the progress made during my clients’ journeys and helping guide them along the way. My approach tends to be more casual and working at the pace that makes clients feel most comfortable. Always remember that healing is a marathon, not a race and it does not have to be done alone.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with family, watching tv, or self-caring with some skincare.
